1:55 am
it's already 39 in reston. 46 in arlington and 46 up in dultsville. so the coldest night of the season. hopefully you brought the plants in. if you covered the plants tonight, it's just as important to uncover them tomorrow. a great weekend. okay. it will be cool on saturday. and then warm on sunday. but really perfect for gardening. it is time to plant the mumz. get some of the -- mums. get some of the halloween decorations up. warmer temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s during that game. okay. overnight we'll say clear skies, colder. frost and freeze north or west. a one blanket night. lows 30-42. winds east, northwest at 5-10. 30s and 40s in the morning. winds easterly at 10. and then by afternoon, a very nice day. mostly sunny and cool but nice. no wind tomorrow. that will make it feel a little more comfortable. you'll need your shades. winds southeast at 10. next three days green, green and
1:56 am
green. and why not? 62 and sunshine. on sunday partly cloudy. 75. clouds will come in late in the day but a very, very nice day. and then on monday showers possible. mid 70s. i don't think we'll get too many complaints. you might need your umbrella on monday. all right. next seven days, on tuesday some clouds maybe in the morning but then partly cloudy and a pretty nice day. mid 60s. we go back to 70 on wednesday. there's a spectacular day. thursday clouds come in late. some showers possible late thursday or thursday night and then on friday a much better chance for showers with temperatures in the mid 70s. we'll try to not have that happen for high school football. >> so our own dave owens. >> wait. light the night for walk of leukemia. >> it's 50 below 0. >> walk at 7:00, get there at 6:00. >> the link is on my facebook page.
1:57 am
now dave owens is down at nats park. >> by the way, the nats are in the process or were in the process of clobbering the cardinals. now they're trying to hang on. we'll tell you what
1:58 am
1:59 am
just in case you have been living in a cave, the nats are in a do or die baseball game against the cardinals. we can't show you highlights because the game is still ongoing. however, here is a look at the numbers. right now it is 6-4 nationals. bottom of the 7th. ryan zimmerman has hit his second homerun of the series. bryce harper has hit a homerun. right up i95 the black and orange did not have any such luck in their game 5 against the yankees. down one in the 6th with a power is shot right down the line.
2:00 am
and it would be deep enough it was call just fouled. they reviewed this one. but only for about 90 seconds. they didn't change it. no homerun. in the 7th, yankees up 2. you can make that 3. no doubt about that shot. no review necessary. kurtis anderson had been struggling all series. but look at this blinker by jj hardy. a great play. orioles done in game 5. 3-1. >> it's been about as much fun as i've had in the big leagues watching how they played the game every day and the standard they held themself too and the way they raised the bar in baltimore with each other. it was about them. they cared about pleasing their teammates and playing to a certain standard. >> great year for the o's. nobody had them when the season started. all right. now, we've been wrapped up in playoff baseball, but it's easy to forget there are some other sports out there. college basketball season kicking off tonight at local
2:01 am
campuses. this is the scene at the center. he's hoping to return to national providence. and as we've been rocking the red at nats park, no such rocking in china town. guess what, tonight would have been the cap's home opener but the players are locked out. no hockey right now. we have some good news at redskins park. robert griffin iii practiced today and he is expected to play although he's listed as questionable on the injury report for sunday's game against the vikings. coming up, week 7 of high school grid iron action, including our game of the week. we'll have all of the details and highlights up next. i'm here to prove that mini babybel cheese

toyota. >> newton high school comes in tonight's matchup needing a win to stay alive in the playoff race. it's homecoming for the patriots. 12,000 of you voted for this game. patriots, barons, that's the game of the week. in what was a very important game, the patriots came in early on. the catch. his name is woods. a big lead early. a lead they would never relinquish. bcc would try to keep this pace to handoff. runs right. getting into the end zone. it's a short touchdown run but wooten pulls away anyhow. the score. patriots win on homecoming 40-20. >> we've had the kids stay out and there vote for the game of the week so we could get this platform so we could put the kids in position to be -- to get a little bit more exposure. they showed up, they played their hearts out and that's all you can ask for as a head coach. >> get
